The community service competition evaluates local chapter activities that benefit the communities while becoming productive community members. SkillsUSA chapters present their best community service project for the year. Competitors are evaluated on a professional portfolio that details their chapter’s community service project and on a presentation to a panel of judges. The competencies that are evaluated are based on the team’s professionalism in the visual representation of the project, designing and implementing an engaging presentation, and effective delivery of that presentation.
The chapter will organize the year’s community service activities and present its best community service project to a panel of judges. Only one project may be presented during the school year. Notebooks containing information about more than one project within the school year will not be judged.
The notebook and presentation should represent a community service project that was conceived, planned and completed during the current school year. Professionals like companies not related directly to projects or High Stakeholders within your district are no longer accepted as letters of recognition.
Note: Although involvement of the entire school is encouraged, the project must clearly be organized and conducted by the active SkillsUSA chapter.
